In honor of April Fool’s Day, Hulu kicks its site back to the mid-1990s when dial-up was impressive, the quality of web images was fuzzy at best, and the TV series The X-Files was all the rage.
Take a gander at the site today and bask in the glory of that awesome web design as you wait for the pages to load to watch the latest episodes of new breakout shows like the aforementioned X-Files (I have a good feeling about this one), as well as NewsRadio, Sliders, and Murder One.
Oh, and don’t fret — if you’re too young to remember the AOL-reigning days of the 1990s or if you’re just too shell-shocked by them, there’s an option to “Take me back to the future.”

Okay folks, it’s confession time: I have never been a fan of The X-Files. I have seen a few episodes of the series and I really enjoyed the first theatrical feature from 1998. But the show never caught enough of my interest to hook me full time during its run.Â I guessÂ I just didn’t have the time. Every time I did watch though, the shows always had compelling stories and the chemistry between stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson was undeniably perfect. Plus I never had a problem following the intricate narrativesÂ despite all the conspiracies and complications the show’s writers would throw into the mix. If you were willing to open your mind and pay attention to what was going on, be it little moments that occur in the shadows or cryptic statements characters would intone to one another, then you were amply rewarded. It was refreshing to have a show like The X-Files on the air especially since the network responsible for its inception has always seemed indifferent to bold, thought-provoking programming. One of the previous decade’s most enduring pop culture phenomenons, The X-Files has lost little of its impact in the years following its last episode. Some questions were answered while many others were left hanging in the air. The success of the show paved the way for many fast-canceled imitators and programs like Alias, Firefly, Lost, and Heroes that would continue (to an extent of course) to carry the torch for intelligent genre television that The X-Files first fired up in the autumn of 1993.
